Grilling season is finally here! That makes me a happy girl. Not just because of BBQing (which is, of course, awesome), but because I absolutely despise the cold weather. Winter really gets me down- I feel depressed, unmotivated, tired, lazy, etc. As soon as I’m able to, I plan on moving to San Diego, California- or possibly some other warm-weather state that has access to healthy food 😉 For now, I am going to soak up every ounce of sun/warm weather I possibly can. Life is just better in the summer.
So, I first tried Cedar Plank Salmon from Seasons 52 (restaurant) and fell in love. I actually order it every time I’m there. I don’t always love salmon, but when it’s cooked right it’s delicious. If you’re not a big fan of salmon, give this recipe a try! My mom really doesn’t like salmon and even she loves Cedar Plank Salmon. It is important to soak the cedar grilling planks in water for at least one hour prior to grilling. (This was my first time using cedar grilling planks and I didn’t fully read the instructions beforehand and just wet them rather than soaking them for an hour). Sooo mine did go on fire a bit and got burned. Not to worry- this may happen- just keep a spray bottle with water by the grill to put out flare-ups. Instead of rubbing the ingredients on the salmon one by one, like I did, you could also mix them all together in a bowl first and then rub the mixture onto the salmon if you prefer. I hope you enjoy my Cedar Plank Salmon as much as I do! Happy Grilling! 🙂
